Some changes to topic settings ...
« on: April 04, 2020, 04:59:52 AM »
Hey folks,

Because of what's going on globally with increased net traffic affecting speeds etc., I've
reduced the number of posts visible per page of a topic, and reduced the max display
width of linked photos.

This is because I've noticed a variation in page generation time on some of the fatter
topics, I've made the changes in hopes of reducing server load going forward. Hopefully
this will help us avoid or reduce potential issues.

Cheers, Jon

No issues here, but appreciate the prudent foresight.

I can not say with certainty that I have had any connectivity issues with the forum but other web pages have been problematic with pages not loading at all or going to a completely different page telling me the link is invalid but after refresh the page magically appears.

I hadn't been on the forum for all of last week due to a stay in hospital (8 days). I hadn't seen any issues before, but since the stay, whenever I sign in, or once in, try to open a topic, I'm getting a page which says it can't connect to the page, which lasts about a few seconds, then the page opens. This morning though, this can't connect message is lasting a bit longer.

No problems here in the Antipodes, although I occasionally get a time-out error (usually on logging in) which is fixed by repeating the original action.

That's, once again, at the GoDaddy server end rather than forum configuration.  >:( :-X
